Our 2012 production of Julia Pastrana was called “must feel theatre.” Now, using only a 3D soundscape engineered with the cinematic Dolby Atmos surround sound, we have created an entirely new auditory event you can experience at home.
This play, originally performed entirely in the dark, transported audiences into Julia Pastrana’s world of traveling circuses and sideshows. Dragged across oceans by her husband and manager, Julia searches wherever she goes for the love and beauty she believes life has in store for her. Based on a true story, the play shows us the face of real beauty without ever letting us see a thing.
Now, as we bring this dynamic play out of the theatre and into your home, we encourage you to dim the lights, turn up your headphones and prepare for an immersive listening encounter with Julia Pastrana, made famous as the “Ugliest Woman in the World.”
